Help with identification…

I received a plant as a gift the label on the pot identifies it as a Veltheimia, Snake Lily Red.  When I look the name up it give me a very different plant.  Could you please help me to identify the plant? I have attached some photos. It is like a grass and is quite striking.
Thank you,

    Difficult to tell from the photo, but this looks like it could be Equisetum (horse tail).

    Equisetum hyemale, I think you might be right, Julie…

    One of the oldest lineage of plants, that. Was around before the dinosaurs.
